New Dodge Durango Sways Minivan Buyers with Style, Performance
With Dodge transforming into a performance brand, the company’s best-selling Grand Caravan will be stepping down, leaving the classic American car company to stand on its own with a line-up of cars marketed toward a new generation of car buyers.
But before you trade in your used Dodge Durango, you can rest easy knowing that the Durango is sticking around for the foreseeable future. In fact, the new Durango takes what you thought was possible from a family-friendly SUV and turns it on its head.
Meet the Dodge Durango R/T
With the Durango R/T, Dodge said: “Let’s make a car people want to drive. And furthermore, let’s make it fun, family-friendly, stylish, and efficient.” Now, sometimes an SUV can be a few of those (usually family-friendly and efficient), but rarely do you see a fun and stylish SUV. But Dodge did it, and well.
Powered by Dodge’s 5.7-liter sport-tuned Hemi V8 engine, the Durango R/T puts out 360 horsepower. That’s right, your new family car is basically a Charger with a less threatening exterior.
What’s truly amazing about this vehicle, though, is that you can choose when you activate the Charger within. An Eco mode option allows drivers to tame the Hemi V8 engine and enjoy a smooth, comfortable ride with the family, while getting maximum fuel efficiency.
Reviewers are raving about the R/T’s incredible sound and standout performance as an SUV. If you’re looking to enjoy driving, while also enjoying family life, there’s no need to invest in a second or third car with the Durango R/T.
